fine pigg finds employment

Fine Pigg has come to play...
the girls, however, are not amused...
"He'll just knock us over, we might break!" whispers Charlotte from the back...her smile frozen....
Nellie looks away while the other girls all stand quietly waiting.
Miss Know- it -All, who thinks two heads are better than one, tells F. Pigg,
"Let's play house! "
You be the Dad and go to work...
she says most decidedly
with her hands on her hips.
oh..ok...I'll be the Dad,
says Pigg...
most grateful to be included
What kind of work is there to do around here anyway...
Poor Pigg... to keep the girls from throwing fits and causing general discord within our peaceful home I told Pigg that he had a most important job...
he could be our Guard Pigg.
He smiled his biggest Pigg smile
and grunted happily...
oh yes! I would Love to be the Guard Pigg.
So he trotted quickly along beside me to the
old tea table in front of the fireplace and
there he took his place of honor
on the tippy top
of
The Old Top Hat
which is filled to the brim
~safe & sound~
all of the names for the 20th Anniversarie Celebration.
Doesn't Pigg look proud of his new station?
You can be quite assured that nothing will come to harm under Guard Pigg's watchful eye.
There is just 1 week left to add your name into the Old Top Hat!
Our 20th Anniversaire Celebration Drawing is October 1st
Please email with your full name & email address
to be added into the Old Top Hat!

hahahaha!!! I LOVE that, mom! that is so funny! Your "girls" remind me of a chapter in the Wizard of Oz book where they come into a land of china people, who are always breaking and needing fixed...Dorothy wanted to take the Queen with her to sit on her mantle at home, but the Queen assured her that if she were taken out of her land, her joints would stiffen, and she wouldn't be able to move around anymore and she would be unhappy. So she needed to stay in the land of china people...you must have a piece of that land in your home...for surely those girls move about unfrozen often - and aren't they lucky to have a Guard Pigg!!

A guard pigg is the luckiest of all pigs to have beside you. It's the ones with wings that you have to watch out for as they tend to take take flight over most anything and sometimes forget where they started....You have a fine pigg Christe`! and he is so wonderfully patient with all the ladies that he guards. You made this pig lover smile all over today!

Oh he looks like a fine pig to be guarding all the names. I am sure no one wants their name to get lost. Blessings Clarice

Christe', you have got to write a children's book! I know I have told you this several times, but you are such a talented writer, don't take it for granted.

Cathy said...

What an endearing story! You should write children's books--of course we big kids would enjoy them too. Your style is so reminiscent of Beatrix Potter--I love it!

Cathy :)

This is a charming story, and Fine Pigg, makes a delightful Guard Pigg indeed!
